Examples

This example creates a new solution folder and adds a project to it from an existing file. Before running this example, create a "Projects" folder off your main drive ("C:" in this example), and create a Visual C# class library project, named "ClassLibrary1" in that folder. You must also open a project in the Visual Studio integrated development environment (IDE) before running this example.

Imports EnvDTE  
Imports EnvDTE80  
Sub solnFolderAddFromFileExample(ByVal dte As DTE2)  
    ' Before running this example, create a "Projects" folder  
    ' off your main drive (C: in this example), and create a C#   
    ' class library project, named ClassLibrary1 in that folder.  
    Dim soln As Solution2 = CType(_applicationObject.Solution _  
    , Solution2)  
    Dim prj As Project  
    Dim SF As SolutionFolder  
    Try  
        Dim prjPath As String = _  
        "C:\Projects\ClassLibrary1\ClassLibrary1\ClassLibrary1.csproj"  
        ' Open a project in the Visual Studio IDE before running   
        ' this example.  
        ' Add a solution folder.  
        prj = soln.AddSolutionFolder("A new soln folder")  
        SF = CType(prj.Object, SolutionFolder)  
        ' Add a project to the new solution folder.  
        SF.AddFromFile(prjPath)  
        MsgBox("Added a new solution folder that contains a _  
        C# project named ClassLibrary1.")  
    Catch ex As System.Exception  
        MsgBox(ex.ToString)  
    End Try

        // Open a project in the Visual Studio IDE before running   
        // this example.  
        // Add a solution folder.  
        prj = soln.AddSolutionFolder("A new soln folder");  
        SF = (SolutionFolder)prj.Object;  
        // Add a project to the new solution folder.  
        SF.AddFromFile(prjPath);  
    MessageBox.Show("Added a new solution folder that contains a   
C# project named ClassLibrary1.");  
    }  
    catch(SystemException ex)  
    {  
        MessageBox.Show(ex.ToString());  
    }  
}  

Remarks

In Visual Studio 2005, solutions can contain solution folders in addition to project folders. Solution folders are project containers that allow developers to better organize large applications.

The solution's Projects property returns a collection of Project objects. Each individual Project has a Kind property which can be set to vsProjectKindSolutionFolder. To get to the SolutionFolder interface, call Project.Object, and then cast the object returned to a SolutionFolder type.
